Sifl and Olly are sock puppets that review videogames

The late 1990s were a very different time for entertainment. It was a time when MTV played music videos most of the time, and when they didn't, it was usually so they could show you something that you couldn't find anywhere else. It was a ...

If Jersey Shore were an RPG

This is probably good for a chuckle. It portrays a terrifying vision of the future in which Jersey Shore is licensed and produced as a videogame. Thankfully, the blow is softened somewhat by how clearly it's satire. Still, I wouldn't ...

Rock Band surpasses 2,000 songs next week

Here's my dilemma, one that I'm sure many of you can relate with: I can't go to the Rock Band store. Physically, I can, but knowing how many worthwhile songs are up for purchase and how impulse buying is far too easy when it comes to digita...

Rock Band 3's Pro Guitar for dummies

Playing a real guitar is complicated, at least more so than picking up a five-button plastic one. Teaching someone to play guitar, even more so. Doing it with a videogame using and expanding on an existing "gameplay vocabulary"? Harmonix is...

Rock Band Avatar 'rocks' Xbox Live or something

I've spent a lot of MS Points on Rock Band songs, but very few on Avatar items. By "very few" I mean zero. So Harmonix and MTV Games introducing Rock Band Avatar items seems like some kind of ploy into tricking me to purchase them. Well, it...
